Sneijder: Stop Rushing Me

Wesley Sneijder has reiterated that he will not be forced into making a snap decision on his future, not by Inter Milan or any of his reported suitors.

Inter want Sneijder off their books, having grown uncomfortable paying his massive wages, and having relegated him to a bit-part player accordingly.

The Dutchman’s most ardent suitors, Turkish giants Galatasaray, are also impatiently waiting for him to decide if he will deem to join them happily, after their bid was snappily accepted by Inter.

But Sneijder feels that he is owed at least the time to measure his decision carefully and in a relaxed manner, considering the major role he played in restoring Inter to greatness under Jose Mourinho.

And he says he will not be rushed into making a choice about his future.

"All players on the move in this transfer window must decide what to do and where to go by the end of January. I'll do the same," Sneijder told Gazzetta dello Sport.

"I am in no hurry and I don't want to rush this decision."

Sneijder feels that Inter’s eagerness to get rid of him is distasteful, after his achievements for and with them.

And so he does not seem likely to do them any favours by speeding up his negotiations with any other club.

"After what has happened in the last few months, in the context of having made football history with my team-mates, well, I don't want to feel pressured," he said.

"After what I did, I don't want to feel this way - practically obliged to make such an important step in my life in a short space of time.”
